[22-year-old Cute Boy on Dating Website] "Wow. Just to let you know, I find you stunningly attractive. Your age has treated you well. It probably wouldn't work out but I felt I had to tell you anyways. Hope your weekend goes well. Southern girl with a Phd living in DC sounds to good to be true...."
[35-year-old Me, Replying to Boy] "Hey hotness.
Thank you. Yeah...PhD...that's what happened to my 20s.
Going out with you would put me solidly in the cougar category, and while I've done it before, I try not to make a habit of that. You are a very attractive guy, though."
